Rick Santorum uses Supreme Court hearings to hit Mitt Romney on health care

Rick Santorum is holding a public event and press conference outside the Supreme Court right now to hit Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney on health care.

It’s a smart move by Santorum as Romney has to navigate one of the “landmines” I mentioned in my post this morning.

On Fox News this morning, Santorum said this:

“The point is, as we have this debate before the Supreme Court today, that Gov. Romney of all the people in this party, as the person who put the blueprint together for ObamaCare, is uniquely disqualified to make the argument against ObamaCare,” Santorum said.  …

“He advocated for what we’re now in front of the Supreme Court saying is unconstitutional,” Santorum said. “His singular weakness is the singular biggest issue in this race, and it’s the singular best opportunity to take it to Obama.”
